Tracy Levinson stopped by "Dana" again this week to discuss the difficulties of parenting in today's world. Speaking with guest host Doc Thompson, Tracy explained how parents must "win the war" over their kids' minds, competing with the numerous philosophies and ideologies that are easily found online.
For example, radical Islam teaches that murder of non-Muslims is a virtuous and holy act, so radicalized young Americans mistakenly believe they are under an ethical compulsion to commit acts of terrorism. Tracy encouraged parents to advocate for their own beliefs while teaching their children to be respectful of differing views:
"We do need to teach people to be respectful to other peoples' opinions. So even in the school system, when you have — there are going to be students that have different ideologies, different religions than you. So I think you have to first of all come from a place of respect. But I do think that it is really important for parents to win the war in terms of their own kids' minds, and it is a battle out there. Because there are all these ideas out there and all these philosophies."
Tracy pointed out that kids today are spending more time in front of a screen than they do listening to their parents.
Doc then stated part of his philosophy of parenting: when all else fails, give your children a hug.
"I agree," Tracy responded. "Because love remains."
